The Truth about Cats and Dogs (#CatDogMooc)

Learn about Cats and Dogs welfare and behaviour with our Coursera MOOC.

What is your cat revealing to you when she purrs? What is your dog expressing when he yawns or wags his tail? Understanding your cat and dog’s behaviour and the way they communicate with you, will enable you to better understand their needs and strengthen your relationship with them. This course is divided into five topics, the appliance of science; behaviour and body language, senses and perception; challenges for the human-animal relationship, including pet problem behaviour; and how to improve the quality of life for cats and dogs in our care.

This course is run by Professor Nat Waran, Dr Heather Bacon, Dr Amy Miele and Miss Hayley Walters.
